  • Former Xavier Church was built in 0/1991 imitated by birthplace Xavier Xavier was burned down in an accidental fire. Many people are puzzled, then was rebuilt with donations of Jesuits, believers and citizens, but too different from the previous Church. I also is one of them. Still remains in the mind is the scene of old Xavier Church. And the stained glass was Xavier's life is very different and the old church. Converted to the Jesuit Xavier born so far in Japan, ōuchi Yoshitaka audience gain missionary and daidouji, and missionary work is a story of life until he died in Goa in India with the stained-glass Windows. This stained glass was not rebuilt. To make the number 1 billion what cost it takes, eventually converge donations, was abandoned. It was also characteristic of this church was a tatami floor. Religious painting of the main altar surrounding was beautiful stuff. This is now the No. What one thing characterizes the old churches like this never be reconstructed, the Catholic Church will be no church, that of the Protestant Church has become. The new Church is very simple. Accessible to the slopes. Exhibited artifacts Museum is located on the first floor, and the Christian missionary in Japan. Himeya's internal State and Xavier stained glass could be seen in the video appearance of the House as the article know the appearance of the old church in the back, but didn't. In the true position of the Church as a place of worship, did not allow filming inside the Jesuits might seem. One day hope to be rebuilt stained-glass Windows.
